Tomorrow’s legal career starts today.
The idea of attending law school may seem like a million years away, but your time at Concordia will be over before you know it. So planning for a career in law as early as possible makes sense.
While no school offers pre-law as a major, Concordia University does offer a pre-law track, or course of study, designed to best prepare you for law school. And unlike medical school, there is no set of prerequisites required in order to apply for law school. Many pre-law students choose majors in history, English, psychology, biology, and chemistry — all undergraduate degrees you will find right here at Concordia.
And if you’re thinking about a pre-law track or know you want to move on to law school, Concordia’s 3 + 3 program allows you to complete both your undergraduate degree at Concordia University-Portland and your law degree at Concordia University School of Law in Boise in just six years, instead of seven.
CU Pre-Law Society
Each year, Concordia graduates go on to law school and become attorneys. The CU Pre-Law Society is designed to help prepare you for this experience. Thanks to a generous grant from the law firm of Miller Nash LLP in Portland, students have the opportunity to tour two law schools each year, visit a law firm, attend law lectures at area law schools, and take advantage of a growing “introduction to law school” library. Becoming an active member of the Pre-Law Society, coupled with Concordia’s one-on-one personal attention and advising, can make a real difference on the road to becoming an attorney.
